I often remember Clarence Wayne "Chuck" Otterman. He was a Third Class Gunner's Mate on the ARIZONA when it was bombed. He saved several of his shipmates from drowning or burning. He was to be given the Navy Cross (second only to the Medal of Honor), but he refused it, saying "I was only doing my duty." He served the rest of the War on USS MURRAY (a destroyer) and survived a number of attacks. When he received his discharge at War's end, he waited a little, then enlisted in the US Army, retiring in 1962 as a Command Sergeant Major of Air Defense Artillery. He went on to serve as a policeman in Center (Shelby County) Texas, retiring as Chief of Police. A real hero, and my close friend.

We're thankful for CPO Justin Wilson: Corpsman attached to Marine special ops first to earn Navy Cross
Camp Pendelton, CA. Today is a great day for our nation recognized a very special man, a tremendous hero -- Chief Petty Officer Justin Wilson who was awarded our country's second highest award for valor, the Navy Cross. In his acceptance speech, Justin mentioned three central themes: honor, courage and commitment. Words that have great meaning. And to warriors like Justin, they are oaths that transcends even battlefields -- watch words for a successful and prosperous life especially despite great odds and seemingly insurmountable circumstances. Justin runs our annual Cast n Blast in his home town of Cawker City, KS. We are honored to know him and his wonderful family and friends. We are thankful for his continued service and commitment to our nation. Semper Fidelis brother! Always faithful. Yours, very truly and respectfully. JJM

Assistant Secretary of Defense under Reagan and then Secretary of the Navy. Senator from Virginia. Prolific writer. Articulate. Intelligent. Speaks fluent Vietnamese. One of his sons is an active duty Marine who served in Iraq during the Bush administration, a situation that led then newly sworn-in Senator Webb to say that he "felt like slugging [President George W. Bush]" after Bush brought up the subject during a White House photo op. Webb refused to have his picture taken with Bush because of the incident though he later managed to forge a working relationship with President.

Never Would Have Guessed WHY MR. ROGERS WORE A SWEATER? Captain Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 at age 76 , which is odd,because he always looked to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/27 ) His death reminded me of the following story. Some people have been a bit offended that the actor, Lee Marvin, is buried in a grave alongside 3 and 4-star generals at Arlington National Cemetery His marker gives his name, rank (PVT) and service (USMC). Nothing else. Here's a guy who was only a famous movie star who served his time, why the heck does he rate burial with these guys? Well, following is the amazing answer: I always liked Lee Marvin, but didn't know the extent of his Corps experiences. In a time when many Hollywood stars served their country in the armed forces often in rear echelon posts where they were carefully protected, only to be trotted out to perform for the cameras in war bond promotions, Lee Marvin was a genuine hero.

Copied from another site: Some of you know that annually since September 11, 2001 local students and community members in Jefferson City, MO have put together different events to support and/or honor the troops, veterans or first responders or a combination of the three. This year the tradition continues with a veteran appreciation dinner and care package program in November called Operation Bugle Boy (OBB). This year the guests of honor are the families of 3 fallen Navy Seals Lt. Michael P. Murphy (Medal of Honor), Petty Officer Danny P. Dietz Jr. (Navy Cross) and Petty Officer Matthew Gene "Axe" Axelson (Navy Cross). All three were killed in action during Operation Red Wings which was depicted in the best selling book and block-buster movie "Lone Survivor". All three of these men, along with fallen local Marine Lance Corporal Leon Deraps who was killed during Operation Iraqi Freedom, have foundations in their name. To express appreciation to the families of these fallen heroes a commemorative rifle ...

It's important that we honor the brave men and women who have earned these medals through their heroic actions. Here's the full text of the bill (PDF):

I am re-posting this in his memory so that we may honor him and his contribution to our country and to those of us who benefited from his wisdom and kindness. Awarded for actions during the World War II The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Lieutenant Commander [then Lieutenant] Winfield Higdon Junk, United States Naval Reserve, for extraordinary heroism in operations against the enemy while serving as Pilot of a carrier-based Navy Torpedo Plane in Torpedo Squadron TWENTY-ONE (VT-21), attached to the U.S.S. BELLEAU WOOD (CVL-24), in action against enemy Japanese forces in the Philippine Islands, on 19 and 25 October 1944. Leading four planes in a raid on enemy shipping in Manila Harbor on 19 October, against fierce enemy opposition, Lieutenant Commander Junk aided in the damaging of a large tanker and a cargo ship.

I see the same post about Lee Marvin, Captain Kangaroo, and Mister Rogers every year around this time. Here's the deal folks: It's all a fabrication or distortion of the truth. Mr Rogers was not a Navy Seal. He had no confirmed kills in combat. He had no tattoos. He never served, except in the capacity of a beloved educator of children. Lee Marvin was awarded the Purple Heart for actions during WWII, not the Navy Cross. He was also not at Iwo Jima. Captain Kangaroo also served, but not during WWII. All of these men deserve our utmost respect for what they did, but tell their story right.
A day to stop and remember the sacrifices many have made for our country, my fine sons included. The Marine Corp was fortunate to have Andrew who worked hard and earned the Navy Cross! Ryan served in the Army during war time and was awarded The Bronze Star Medal for his dedication during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Very proud of our sons for their service.

Operation Swift. The mission, involving forces of the 1st Marine Division, was carried out to rescue two Marine companies which had been previously ambushed by the North Vietnamese Army. Launched on September 4, the ensuing battles killed 127 Americans and an estimated 600 North Vietnamese. Despite their withdrawal after having suffered much higher losses, the NVA had accomplished their objective of inflicting remarkable American casualties. The operation, intended to be the fourth and the last of the 1967 operations in the Que Son Valley, began unofficially the morning of September 4 when Delta Company, 1st Battalion 5th Marines (1/5) was attacked before dawn by a superior PAVN force while setup in a night-time defensive perime ...

Now to start, a Gunnery Sergeant is the Marines and Special Forces is the Army. If he were special operations in the Marine Corps he would have listed Force Recon or something like that, and no special operations operator would get that confused and list Special Forces. Next, The Navy Cross and Silver Star are very high awards and not very many, especially the Navy Cross have been awarded during the Global war on Terrorism. There are detailed lists online that list all recipients of these two awards along with their Award Citation and accompanying Narrative. This guy was not on any list for the Navy Cross (there are only 23 names for the NC for th ...

Because Memorial Day is coming up and people will be posting the usual things without checking to see if they are true or not. Lee Marvin did NOT get awarded the Navy Cross at Iwo Jima (though he WAS there and did earn a Purple Heart). Bob Keeshan, ("Captain Kangaroo") did serve in the U.S. Marines, but he did so too late to see any action during World War II. (So contrary to rumor, he did not fight on Iwo Jima with Lee Marvin.) For the umpteeth time, Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) WAS NOT a Navy Seal and did not wear the sweater to cover up all of his tattoos (which didn't have). Fact check people, it doesn't take that long to google/snopes something. If it seems to great to be real, it probably isn't.

I'm trying to go viral;. Can you help me out? Democrats Need a Karl Rove Here’s the (imagined) scenario behind what happened yesterday. Republican strategists gather to ask, ‘How can we discredit Hillary. We’ve just about worn out Benghazi. Monica was a three day story. We need something else.’ “That’s easy,” says Karl Rove, the genius with no conscience whatsoever who can get a lie into the mainstream quicker than any person on the planet. “How?” “With Kerry, we took his greatest strength - the War Hero image - and we swiftboated him. We had Vietnam veterans questioning his Navy Cross, and on a daily basis for the entire campaign, we turned him into a phony as he was called upon to explain how he actually was a war hero. And all the liberal media rushed to his side, with nightly stories saying hysterically how this was a lie. But remember - every one of those reports began by rebroadcasting our lie every night all across the country, time and again, month after month, getting all work ...

Tradition and historic significance are two reasons why Penn Men's Golf plays at the Naval Academy tournament each spring. This monument is located behind the 14th green, and it pays tribute to Space Shuttle Commander Willie McCool. Commander McCool died aboard the space shuttle Columbia when it broke apart on reentry during a mission in 2003. Willie McCool was captain of the Navy cross country team in 1982 and while setting a personal record for his home course, at this very point he was "16 minutes from home". This monument is a reminder that the Naval Academy is much more than just an opponent for Penn. Our team holds its Navy counterparts in the highest regard.
A Marine Gunnery Sergeant who repeatedly braved Taliban fire to rescue and rally his troops in Afghanistan has received the Navy Cross.
For repeatedly using his own body to shield other Marines from enemy fire, for dashing across fire-swept ground to recover a Marine shot in the face by an enemy sniper, and for orchestrating a five-hour firefight by coordinating multiple U.S., Afghan and Georgian units across three languages, Gunnery Sgt. Richard A. Jibson became the most recent Marine to earn the Navy Cross.

Here is a little story about"Captain Kangaroo",that if you read it, you should find quite interesting.You JUST NEVER WILL KNOW WHERE THE NEXT AMERICAN HERO WILL COME FROM...Dialog from "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson": His guest was Lee Marvin... Johnny said, "Lee, I'll bet a lot of people are unaware that you were a Marine in the initial landing at Iwo Jima .. and that during the course of that action you earned the Navy Cross and were severely wounded." "Yeah, yeah... I got shot square in the bottom and they gave me the Cross for securing a hot spot about halfway up Suribachi. Bad thing about getting shot up on a mountain is guys getting shot hauling you down. But, Johnny, at Iwo , I served under the bravest man I ever knew... We both got the Cross the same day, but what he did for his Cross made mine look cheap in comparison. That dumb guy actually stood up on Red beach and directed his troops to move forward and get the *** off the beach.. Bullets flying by, with mortar rounds landing everywhere ...

TODAY IN Marine Corps HISTORY: 1972: One Marine cripples North Vietnamese Invasion. Then-Captain John Ripley blows up the bridge at Dong a. in Vietnam. He accomplished this act of epic heroism after three days of intense combat, without any food or sleep. A few sips of water from his canteen provided his only sustinence. This superhuman feat crippled the 1972 North Vietnamese Easter invasion which ended in defeat. Thus, the government honored his leadership, heroism and self-sacrifice at Dong Ha with a Navy Cross.
